Thanksgiving 2015: Guide to Restaurant Dinners in Miami

It's not Thanksgiving yet, but those oh-so-familar cravings for turkey, gravy, and cranberry are creeping in. The only thing that stands between you and satisfying that pesky hunger with an autumn-inspired feast are a few hundred dollars, days of preparation, and long hours slaving away over a hot stove.

There are two ways to go: Put on your apron and get in the kitchen, or leave it to one of 40 Miami eateries. A bevy of them will be open on Turkey Day to cook traditional and untraditional multicourse meals. Think smoked, roasted, or fried turkey, every type of stuffing concoction imaginable, and even Indian-themed dishes. There's a meal for all moods, palates, and budgets. Take your pick, and be sure to make reservations well in advance, because seats fill fast.
